You Let Your Figure Go

One of the first signs you have let go of your appearance is that your figure has changed, maybe even drastically. This is easy enough to do. Sometimes we just become complacent and tend to overlook taking care of ourselves. Thankfully, there are things that you can do to get back on track. Start watching what you eat and exercising again. Soon enough your old figure will be making a return appearance.


You Don’t Wear Makeup like You Once Did

You can certainly be a true beauty without makeup but if you once wore makeup and don’t any longer, is it because you have let go of your appearance? Maybe it just seems too much of an effort. Perhaps you just don’t feel you have time for makeup application with small children or a demanding career. You can change this. You don’t even have to go back to your old makeup routine if you don’t want to. Try finding a five minute makeup routine that works for you in your life now.


You Don’t Put Any Effort into Your Hair

Has the messy bun become your normal, daily hairstyle? Most of us are guilty of clipping our hair up out of our face sometimes but if you rarely ever take time to style it and you once did, maybe you have let your appearance go a little. Look back on some pictures of yourself before the messy bun was your norm. Do you miss your old styles? If you do, you can try putting a bit more effort into styling your hair again.


You Find Yourself in Slouchy Clothes More Often than Not

Yoga pants are a trap, ladies. Once you get used to the comfort of them, it is hard to go back to other clothing. I have had to fight this trap myself. But we are all worth the effort it takes to look nice. Take the time and put in the effort needed to dress nicely.


You Don’t Take Pride in Yourself

Did you used to take more pride in your appearance than you do now? Did you devote more effort to it? Maybe you cared more about how you look than you do now? If this is true, you may have stopped taking pride in your appearance. This is something that you just have to make a decision to care more about.

Famous Quotes

To give oneself earnestly to the duties due to men, and, while respecting spiritual beings, to keep aloof from them, may be called wisdom.


You Don’t Work out like You Once Did

Exercise is something that can easily fall by the wayside when life gets busy. It is hard to make time for everything as your life changes and your responsibilities increase. You just have to make a decision to make yourself a priority. You will find that other things do find a way to fall in place around time for exercise. Your health and your appearance are absolutely worth the time and effort it takes to get a workout in.


You Feel Embarrassed of the Changes in Your Body

If you feel embarrassed by the changes in your body, you may have let go of your appearance. Some changes are inevitable. We are all going to age and change to some extent, but there is no reason we can’t continue to try to look our best at all stages of our lives. It makes you feel a lot better about yourself.

These are some signs that you may have let go of your appearance. Do you see any of these signs in yourself? Does this give you motivation to get back on track?

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

This is so offensive, it made me laugh out loud. What exactly is supposed to be wrong with "letting go" of your appearance? If a woman has a satisfying relationship/career/etc. and doesn't feel the need to work on her appearance, that's supposed to be bad somehow? Sorry, but are you really envisioning a successful and busy woman reading this and coming to the realization that she looks bad and can look better? Here's a thought: women should put as much effort into their appearance as the find necessary, and it's nobody's job to tell her how much effort she should be putting in. And I say this as a woman who doesn't leave the house with a chipped manicure.


I love this article! Sadly I found myself agreeing with every single sign. I didn't realize how badly I had let myself go until I read this. It's not vanity... It's caring for yourself and making yourself feel good. And when you feel good you are motivated to accomplish more and help others!

I don't run, style my hair, or dress up as much as I used to. That was a good point in time.. 😪 Lol 😹

@Dascha it is a woman's job to ALWAYS look good and to look good is a very very hard work. There is no excuse for it. How organized we are in our lives starts with us first. The first thing a woman has to do after she wakes up is to fold her bed, wash herself and make herself pretty. After it she can either clean, grocery shop, or run the office. But a woman simply has to always look good and put together.

I used to wear makeup daily but only wear it on special occasions now and use tinted moisturiser daily. It doesn't mean you've let your appearance go. My partner prefers when I don't wear makeup.
